Dr. Dre's Son Andre -- Dead at 20

8/26/2008 1:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Dre's son, Andre Young, Jr., was found dead over the weekend.

You may have heard reports Dr. Dre's son Andre Jr. didn't come home until 5:30 AM the day he died. Not true.

A source tells us that Andre, Jr. was home by 12:30 AM, and in bed shortly thereafter. He was found by his mother, Jenita Porter, sometime after 10:00 AM that morning, unresponsive.

A rep for the rapper tells us, "Dr. Dre is mourning the loss of his son Andre Young, Jr."

What a terrible thing to happen to one of the many Icons in the rap game to have to endure. A life so full of promise is now gone. I just hope this isn't drug related, even still it's sad
